Cilix driver

Digital control of dual medium size servo motor’s

Dual channel digital Motor-Drive-System (MDS) for tight controlled agitation of small-to-medium size SUBs (Single-Use-Bioreactor) and in particular P-SUBs (Perfusion-Single-Use-Bioreactors).

Cilix is designed to be combined with other digital Cronus-PCS units supervised by Lucullus software for batch cultivation, SUFs (Single-Use-Fermenter's) and the more advanced perfusion cultivation being operated independent in parallel.
